Armored trucks in Canada Why

Are Police forces gearing up for Civil unrest, or am I getting paranoid?

Years back I read an article on how our police forces are possibly gearing up for major problems in our society [civil unrest].

This American writer noticed how many of these “trucks” were being transported up and down their major highways and wondered why; he was quite concerned about the fact.

That was in the US, and not that many years back.

In Canada every once in a while you will catch a glimpse of one of these armored trucks in the local news. I really didn’t do any research on the matter, probably because, I really “don’t want to know” how many are out there.

But when you see small cities, communities buying up these armored trucks just to transport our troops …. Sorry, I mean… police forces to the crime scene, it seems like an overkill. 

These same cities that are buying this equipment, and only my guess, up to a 1/4 of a million dollars a truck can’t afford this kind of expenditure, never the less the maintenance.

“Have to get me one of them”.

Even if they never see the outside of a garage, they still have to be looked over, spent money on, made ready for that unexpected phone call,

“Get ready boys, we’re going in!”

I think our Finest have been going to too many policeman balls/ functions and sharing good, bad and ugly stories over a little…  hooch.

One officer says to the other, “What? You don’t have ONE!!!!” …. I would hate to think that’s all it takes.

Hell, one Mayor says, we don’t even have full-time firefighters.

Protect our Police Officers in every way possible…YES, but Armored Vehicles in CANADA.

I’m sorry to see it come to that.   Eh!

On a lighter NOTE …

Many years back there was a bank robbery around the corner from where I worked, I saw two officers speeding by our door, one driving the Motor Cycle and one in the sidecar… 

By the way, this fun Photo goes back a little further than I do, but you get the “picture”.
